la Barbecue

La Barbecue brings out all the staples you'd expect in a barbecue joint – brisket, pulled pork, turkey, sausage, ribs, with sides like buttermilk potato salad rounding out the meat-centric spread. Pitmaster John Lewis, who honed his skills at Franklin Barbecue, cooks from a pit of his own design and his ingenuity reveals itself in every juicy, smoky bite.
